I am an entrepreneur, co-founder of Adaptive US, building my brand to be a global name in the Business Analysis domain. My mission is to help business analysts to build a successful professional career. 

All of us realize the value of re-use. Re-use saves cost and improves quality.


But when it comes to reusing requirements, I hardly hear any organization making a planned effort to re-use requirements.


In this regard, I felt, let us start with set of requirements which are highly likely to be re-used. If we can identify them and catalog them, we can definitely find projects which would have implemented them.


So in future, when we encounter such requirements, we simply refer to our catalog.


I started and enumerated 25 common requirements that I came across as a BA. I would urge my fellow BAs to update the list. Once we hit 100, we do have a great list to refer.


Here is my 25 to the list.

  1. Authentication
  2. Search
  3. Date validation
  4. Currency conversion
  5. Printing
  6. Import – Excel, Word, PDF, MPP
  7. Export – Excel, Word, PDF, MPP
  8. Data encryption
  9. Data validations – Text, Number, Email
  10. SMS integration
  11. Email integration
  12. Image compression
  13. Storing of artifacts
  14. Privilege allocation
  15. Holidays
  16. List of countries
  17. List of states in various countries
  18. Phone codes for various countries
  19. Multi-language support
  20. Multi-currency support
  21. Date comparison
  22. Social integrations – Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+
  23. Maps
  24. Units of measure conversions
  25. Currency conversions

Sharing is caring!

    Dear Misra:

    Good to find you are serious about ReUse that too of Requirement Artifacts. I realized it ten years ago and made a proposal ReSAR, Reusable Software Artifacts Repository. Please see the following PPT and also PDF on SlideShare:

    What is important is to provide the Artifacts which is eminently feasible. Some artifacts can be in public domain and others can be priced. Let’s work on them even if the tally does not reach 100. 02NOV17
